ABOUT THE TOUR

Bridgerton and Regency Royals

The new Netflix series Bridgerton has captured audiences across the nation since its much-anticipated release on Christmas Day. Filled with fantastic costumes and glamorous backdrops, it transports us to another world and provides the perfect escapism from the reality of lockdown life and has allowed us all to live vicariously in high society. Join us as we visit some of the filming locations, such as Historic Dockyard Chatham, Hatfield and Ranger's House, and walk in the footsteps of both the actors and actresses as well as many real historical figures.

TOUR INCLUDES

  • 4 nights hotel with English breakfast
  • 4 evening meals
  • Local Joining Points
  • Porterage at the hotel

5 Day Itinerary

  • Day 1:

    Local departure by coach or Home Connect service, then on to the King Charles Hotel for four nights.

    Included meals: Dinner

  • Day 2: Historic Dockyard Chatham

    Some of Bridgerton's key characters have a solid foundation in history, such as Queen Charlotte (played by Golda Rosheuvel). The real-life Queen Charlotte and her husband, King George III, were on the British throne at the height of the Age of Sail during the time when great warships were built at Chatham, and the King visited Chatham himself in 1778. Also on display here is a model of the Queen Charlotte, a 100-gun first-rate ship of the line and a figurehead model of Queen Charlotte herself - with a less elaborate wig than you might expect from the show! There's also a portrait of King George III, which you can compare to actor James Fleet who played him in the show to see if there's a resemblance.

    Not only is Historic Dockyard Chatham a real life location of the Regency Royals, it was also a filming location for some Bridgerton scenes, such as the boxing ring where many scenes take place, including fights with the main character Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings (played by Regé-Jean Page).

    Historic Dockyard Chatham is no stranger to being a film set, with many films and TV shows filmed here, most famously Call the Midwife. While you're here, why not step into another time in history and also explore the cobbled streets of 'Poplar' that have kept us entertained for ten seasons.

    Included meals: Breakfast, Dinner

    Chatham Docks

    Chatham Docks

    Included Highlights

    • Chatham Docks
  • Day 3: Hatfield House

    Hatfield House is steeped in history, built by Robert Cecil between 1607-11 and is associated with Queen Elizabeth I who spent some of her childhood here.

    A fantastic property with stunning architecture and a wealth of history, Hatfield makes for a perfect filming location. It is frequently used as a location in period pieces, from the 1998 classic Shakespeare in Love to another Netflix favourite, Enola Holmes, a modern re-telling of Sherlock Holmes. It also provided the setting for the Oscar-winning The Favourite in 2018, where Olivia Colman played Queen Anne. 

    Bridgerton fans will spot many locations that appeared on the show, with parts of the house appearing as the home of the Featheringtons and as the Gentleman’s Club.

    Included meals: Breakfast, Dinner

    Hatfield House

    Hatfield House

    Included Highlights

    • Hatfield House
  • Day 4: Ranger's House and Greenwich

    Ranger's House is an elegant Georgian villa on the boundary of Greenwich Park, and is an English Heritage Grade I listed house. It is home to The Wernher Collection, a world-class art collection amassed by 19th century businessman, Sir Julius Wernher. Over 700 works of art are displayed across a dozen panelled interiors, and include medieval sculptures, glittering enamels, ornate jewellery, Renaissance paintings including Madonna of the Pomegranate (Madonna della Melagrana) from Sandro Botticelli's workshop, Dutch Old Masters and French tapestries.

    The exterior of the house was used during the filming and you may recognise it if you imagine it adorned with pretty purple wisteria! The façade is home to main character, Daphne Bridgerton (played by Phoebe Dynevor), along with her mother and seven brothers and sisters. Interestingly, the interior shots taken in another property and the building was superimposed into Grosvenor Square when it in fact stands alone at the top of Greenwich Park - all part of the TV magic!
